Interview with Katherine Levine Einstein about her book Neighborhood Defenders: Participatory Politics and America’s Housing Crisis. Focuses on the ability of local residents to use the zoning and permit process to prevent development of housing or to reduce the amount of housing that can be built, which lifts house prices.

While presented as a discussion about American housing it applies just as much to New Zealand and other countries where planning processes throttle supply.
